This powerful film tells the gripping true story of the pivotal moment in Martin Luther King Jr’s epic civil rights struggle – the 1965 protest march from Selma to Montgomery Alabama to secure voting rights for African Americans.
British actor David Oyelowo gives a stunning performance as King, whose belief in non-violent protest is met with extreme violence, and whose backroom negotiations with US President Lyndon Johnson (Wilkinson), and others, leave him exasperated.
“A scorching, full-boddied, flat-out great film.” The Telegraph
